Lizzo to replace Yeah Yeah Yeahs on “Saturday Night Live” as last Musical Guest of 2022


SNL announced that singer, flutist and actress Lizzo will provide the musical entertainment next weekend when Elvis star Austin Butler serves as guest host.

The rock band Yeah Yeah Yeahs were originally set to perform on next weekend’s edition of Saturday Night Live, but was forced to withdraw because guitarist Nick Zinner is still battling pneumonia.  The musicians posted on social media early Sunday: “We are deeply thankful and expectedly heartbroken we cannot rise to these occasions.  The band’s top priority is supporting Nick through a full recovery.”

Lizzo will serve as musical guest on SNL for a third time, having previously done so in December 2019 (opposite host Eddie Murphy) and again this past April (when she pulled double duty as host).
